NGB | Ryse: Son of Rome Preview

The few hours Asim spent with Ryse: Son of Rome definitely left a far more positive impression of the game from E3 or even gamescom . It’s gone from a ‘not interested” title to a ‘might pick this up’ which is a credit to what Crytek has done in terms of improving based on feedback. The visuals are mighty impressive, but only the full game will reveal whether or not it has the substance to go with the style. There was somewhat a basic upgrade and XP system during the time with the game to go along with decent combat system, but didn’t have the time to delve into fully. Ryse even features a multiplayer mode too, which has been played very briefly at gamescom. Brief being around 20-30 minutes, not enough really. 22nd November will be time for the full verdict, and hopefully we’ll be there soon after to provide you with ours.

"Running at 900p in 30 frames per second, Ryse looks stunning. There is no other way to put it really. On a visual level, it’s arguably the Xbox One’s best title. It’s one you’d definitely put on to show your friends or family (over 18, of course) the power of your shiny new next-gen console. Environments are filled with detail, the lighting is utterly gorgeous, animations look natural and the character models are great. Watching the armour of a solider glistening in the sun, reflecting flames or just the general background never got old. However, the most impressive visual aspect is the detail in the character faces, it’s just astounding. I would go as far as saying they’re probably the best I’ve seen in a video game to date. If this is what developers can do with 900p and 30 frames per second, I can’t wait to see what happens when they get used to consoles and go 1080p and 60 frames per second!"

This game will showcase X1's graphical capabilities. And they do look stunning none the less. Not bad for game that supports have the res and frames that most AAA support for next gen.

And most of all, a game they showcased at E3 that turned out to be real. I thought it was just another CGI trailer trying to pass off "All rendered in in game." At the time I thought no way the game will look this real.

The visuals were real and not cheesy CGI. Man its about time.

It's in contention but I still like NBA 2K14 because it's based in a reality that we know very well it's even harder to make it look as great as it does.

I mean we all know what someone throwing a basketball looks like but we aren't too familiar with what a sword fight really looks like (in terms of animation).

So when we see a basketball animation it has to be perfect for us to think it looks great because we've seen it so many times.

My brother in law said that this game is simply spectacular. He said he doesn't know how, but games on the xbox one that are 900p or even 720p, don't look like it at all. He said the games all look 1080p or higher. He doesn't know how or why, but he said the games are beautiful and waaaay ahead of the current gen games.

That's all I need to know. And Ryse is rewarding & fun to play. There is a little learning curve when it comes to blocking strikes and stringing together attacks against multiple enemies. But he said the atmosphere is crazy and the game play gets deeper as you get more xp and additional finishing moves. As you become better at it, you want to go back and replay levels. Good times await!!!
